The Wombats are just one of them bands that will stand the test of time. They rightly deserve our Song Of The Week spot with their latest single ‘Lemon To A Knife Fight’.
The Liverpool trio have announced their fourth album, ‘Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life’ will be released in February 2018 and a March UK tour (dates below).
Their development from their debut album, ‘A Guide to Love, Loss & Desperation’ has been incredible. In classic indie pop Wombats style, the band have constantly progressed from upbeat indie pop to a more synth-driven affair.
Frontman Matthew “Murph” Murphy explains on Triple J, the song’s origins came from a real-life argument. “’Lemon to a Knife Fight’ came around after my wife and I had a huge argument on Mulholland Drive,” he said. “I’d been watching tons of David Lynch too, the song just kind of fell out of me.”
